What is the objective?

Robert Pattinson has been shooting Cosmopolis in Toronto. Fans have been trying to locate him for weeks; I’m told both production and his personal management have gone to great lengths to keep him away from them. Logistics, for example. It’s not so much securing an area for safety, but they’re going so far as to consider venues for employee traffic and eyeballs, to eliminate the Twitter and Facebook elements as much as they can. Kinda sad, actually. Pattinson is stuck in a Twi-Hard prison which sounds like it would be an awesome digital short with Billy Hader playing RP and Bobby Moynihan as his most ardent fan.

On those occasions when it can’t be helped though, filming outside yesterday, with co-star Sarah Gadon, taking direction from David Cronenberg, they found a way to find him. Check it out – on a Sunday, this is how they chose to spend it. And… for why?

Not being facetious, really want to know.

Will he come out his trailer, make eye contact, and think to himself, “oh look, that’s the love of my life, who’s been waiting like a loser for 5 hours just to watch me walk from makeup to set… I must have her”?

Or, “Oh look, that person must be so cool, waiting there all day with nothing better to do, I must introduce it to my friends”?

Or, “It’s so attractive when someone spends their Sunday just waiting to see and scream at me, I want to get to know them better, for my personal growth”?

Some say it’s because they just want a photo…to post on their Facebooks or Twitters which, I mean, it’s not like any photo they take is going to be any better than these pap shots with good equipment and professional handling. And if somehow they manage to beg their way into a picture with him standing awkwardly beside them, boasting that up on the Facebooks is more like advertising the fact that you waited out there for 5 hours for him on a Sunday, non?

I’m sorry. I totally believe you that you were just walking by and it took no more than a minute. Forgive me.

Anyway, as previously mentioned, ever since he delicately handled an alligator on the cover of Vanity Fair, I have been OBSESSED with RoBbiE’s tea-pouring hands. They’re the first things I look at whenever I see new photos. At this point, I’m so fascinated, I almost want to name them.
